Personally I think the food is over-priced compared to manufacture cost, … Personally I think the food is over-priced compared to manufacture cost, with comparable food.There are actually a niche of people trying to fake coeliac by ingesting certain foodstuff, same niche as certain benefits claimants, it utterly ****** me off when the worst ones try to do it to their kids -they should be sterilised and never allowed to have kids. Thankfully the tests are quite sensitive and genuine cases in children are easily spotted, although the elderly is slightly harder.



Coeliac disease is diagnosed by a specific antigen test (blood test) followed by an endoscopy/biopsy, I'd love to know where you've heard of people ingesting anything to fake a diagnosis?????

Thank you

Great. Thanks for sharing. Good time to stock up.

Ooh fabby. Thanks

3 for 2? why not 33% off. I shouldn't complaint as offers like this supply the reduced section. (when you don't buy because you only want 1 but feel short changed by the offer)

Exactly the tests are sensitive. However if the test is negative and all the symptoms are there, it is normal practice to still do an endoscopy. In these cases, most of the time you find nothing and say its IBS but not always, sometimes it may confirms the diagnosis or you see another cause. Bottom line, don't try to fake it!

How many instances of munchhausen by proxy do you think there actually are, and what percentage of those are trying to fake coeliacs????? Your statement and ire make no sense.
